On May 24, 1959 a City Art Gallery was inaugurated in the reconstructed Synagogue. The Art Gallery has borne the name of Vladimir Dimitrov – Maystora since 1961. His artworks are closely connected with the people from Kyustendil region – he lived and painted in the village of Shishkovtsi for many years.
